'Whitney, My Love' by Judith McNaught
My Thoughts: This book has been suggested to me ever since I first started interacting with other people in the reader's of romance novels community. To receive the level of praise and acclaim as 'Whitney, My Love' has achieved, it's no wonder I salivate whenever I come across it on yet another web page."Under the dark, languorous eyes of Clayton Westmoreland, the Duke of Claymore, Whitney Stone grew from a saucy hoyden into a ravishingly sensual woman. Fresh from her triumphs in Paris society, she returned to England to win the heart of Paul, her childhood love...only to be bargained away by her bankrupt father to the handsome, arrogant Duke. Outraged, she defies her new lord.
But even as his smoldering passion seduces her into a gathering storm of desire, Whitney cannot, will not, relinquish her dream of perfect love."Source
The length of this book might scare a few people off- Visiting Judith's website, and stopping by the book's info page, it features the 1985 first edition (Hardcover) which has 592 pages. On amazon.com, it lists a re-released 2000 edition of the book at 736 pages, and another 1991 re-release edition at an even 400 pages. But something tells me this is the kind of book that you take a chance on and get blown away.
I am sure to catch one of my seasonal colds any day now, and you better believe this book will be on transit to my doorstep just as quickly to help me past the solitary hours. With over 449 reviews on amazon.com (and scores of mentions all over the blogosphere), this is one beloved book! I can't wait to get my hands on it!
